A 16-year-old Joliet boy who posted a photo of his naked girlfriend on Instagram and pulled a BB-gun on the girl's mother when she confronted him about it was arrested Monday night, Joliet police said.

The teen reportedly obtained the photo from his 15-year-old girlfriend, who sent it to his cell phone, Cmdr. Al Roecher said. He uploaded it to Instagram, an online social networking service that allows photos and videos to be filtered and shared publicly.

When the girl's mother learned what happened, she went to the suspect's house in the 1100 block of Frederick at about 5:30 p.m. and confronted him, Roechner said. He responded by pulling out a weapon that ended up being a BB-gun, he said.

The woman notified police, and the teen was arrested at about 6:20 p.m. and charged with obscenity for posting the photo and disorderly conduct for pointing a BB-gun at the woman, he said.

The photo was recovered from the suspect's phone, he said.

The teen is being held in the River Valley Juvenile Detention Center in Joliet.

@Leroy, First of all no one has insulted Obama. You left wing Lucy's really need to get a grip. Anyway, since when is criticizing the president such a terrible thing. If the left wingers in this country had there way, we'd all be listening to and watching only the programs that they would allow. The problem with people like you Leroy is its gotta be your way or the highway and when you can't get your way you throw insults and snide remarks around ( whose the adult now). Everyone has a right to express their opinion, feeble or otherwise, and you have no right to criticize just because it doesn't meet your criteria or standards. Chill out Leroy! I realize that the weight of our constitution is a great load for a spineless left wing Lucy like yourself to carry but it's here to stay, Thank God! And that's no insult.

I agree with you Mongo, it was okay to bash Bush, Ron Paul, Romney or anyone conservative. But, Obama the new messiah is off limits! Well guess what folks, he's a piece of garbage just like any other politician! Deal with it!
